So... I'm going with Omegalodon, Chrome, APOX and Kaptain Brawe. Doesn't seem a bad bundle...

Posted this on another forum:
Okay, 99LoH seems like it's a roguelike platformer of sorts. I didn't see any save function, and it's 99 level of hell and all, so I'm assuming.
It's a pretty fun one. Has a Legend of Zelda (NES) esque shop and all, constantly picking up new weapons, low amount of health at the beginning. Physics are a bit floaty, but overall, especially considering it's in alpha, it ran really well, has a lot of nice particles and lighting, the mood is pretty good, and I definitely recommend it.
Played a bit of War In a Box. From the first level, it seems ridiculously easy. It's pretty much like any tower defense game...only made of "paper". It's pretty simplified though, seeming to always have only a limited number of tower slots available, and at the beginning you only have one gun, and upgrades cost the same low cost as the tower did to place, so it all adds up to "well, duh, of course that's the solution".
Maybe it'll get more difficult later though.

No saving? I guess it's not for me then. I'm thinking just CreaVures and Brawe but I'm really non-plussed about this one. Guess I'm gonna wait for the mystery game this time too.

Well, after writing that, I did some more digging. It's most definitely a roguelike. Without saving, though. Might change in the future, but I couldn't find a save function.
EDIT2: Don't forget BiaB2 Friday, Humble Bundle 6 "soon", Indie Royale rumored for tomorrow, and the Winter Wolves bundle is rumored for tomorrow.

Yes. Not having a save function does seem like a pretty fundamental design decision, rather than just that little extra layer of polish that is just saved up for later. That's an easy pass for me, so thanks for bringing it up.

Looks like the Groupees guys have already unveiled the 'mystery game'. It's Avencast: Rise of the Mage, an IFK repeat.

Good catch. Too bad I already have half of it.
edit: and updated.

Lunar Flight looks lovely and I got it in a recent Steam sale, but I haven't played it yet - I want to print out the manual (yes, that kind of game). I think I remember RPS liking Sequence. The rest of those don't mean much to me."Harry uses the One Ring to defeat Magneto and save the Rebellion!"
With thanks to RaveTurned in comments on the main page.

IMO it's worth it just for Lunar Flight and Sequence. On sale they can be had for about the same price of the bundle.
The core of Sequence is fighting enemies through a rhythm game where you juggle three playing fields, it's wrapped in a layer of RPG (with XPs, level, attack/defense, an inventory and objects to be crafted, and has a linear story you walk your character through. All in all I liked it.
LF a sim-mish game with career mode, upgrades, that takes some using to the controls. IMO the manual is not necessary (worth a read, anyway), but watch the tutorial videos. It's interesting and unusual, and I definitely want to play more of it (when, that's another question)
For both I'd recommend using a pad, even though the keyboard is serviceable.
I've got S&S from HIB (and never played it), and the only game I'm curious about is CTDV.

Is a need to respond to the number of topics to post a topic?

I got Swords and Soldiers for Wiibox 360 a few years ago to play with my girlfriend. It's okay, probably more fun than one might think, but it didn't hold our attention long. It's the sort of thing that was acceptable on Wii just because of how few worthwhile games there were.

I want Secret of the Magic Crystals. Seriously. I'd play the fuck out of that shit.

Sequence is probably the best written video game I've ever played - seriously - it balances wit and humour with just enough self-deprecation to not come over as being nerdy or childish.
Another thing I loved about it is that the developers recognised that the XBLIG demo had a fixed-timer and so when you played it, they hustled you into the game quickly - all the time reminding you that you could rerun the demo to see a bit more of what was on offer. That level of thought in a game costing $5 (at the time - cheaper here) - fantastic doesn't cover it.
The trailers give an idea of the humour and should give you an idea of whether you'll like it - there's a TONNE of reviews too because - frankly - it's bloody brilliant
That guy who sounds like every nerd in every shop/pub/office ever - with a touch of Radio TopShop - even liked it
Also - it has Ronald Jenkees - I mean what else do you fucking want!?!? :)
It's fantastic OK? - pinky swear ;)

New Humble Bundle: Vessel, Torchlight, Rochard, S.P.A.Z., and Shatter, plus Dustforce if you beat the avergage. All Windows, Mac and Linux. A single Steam key for the first 5 (duplicated games are not giftable) and a separate one for Dustforce.

Rochard is the only game I don't have, which also means I'm not particularly thrilled by this bundle. The DustForce OST, on the other hand, looks delicious; Do I have to BTA to get the OST? I'm guessing yes, but I'd rather ask.
